To start, place the prop on the balancer and let it reach equilibrium. The lower blade is the heavier; the middle one is intermediate and the higher one is the lightest. The game is now to add weight to the lightest and intermediate blades in order to achieve 3 blades with the same weight. Never add weight to the heavier blade, to avoid doing this, mark it with a felt-tip pen.
Last step is a check by placing each blade in the 12 hours position and verifying that the position can be maintained, meaning the 2 other blades have the same weight. If necessary, proceed to little adjustment of the position of the tapes to get the equilibrium. Once this is done, you should be able to position the prop at any angle and it should remain it that position.
- During all the process, keep your hands and fingers away from the blades and the prop, the magnetic balancer is so sensitive that you can move the blades only with the static electricity from your hands
- With a triple blade, there is no need to equilibrate the hub like with double bladed pros because in this case the 3 blades at 120° allow to reach perfect equilibrium without having to touch the hub.
